Private eyes are watching you?: Possible #1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell says that at one point recently an NFL team -- he says he does not know which one -- spied on him for a period of several days and possibly longer by assigning someone to follow him. Fair game or not?

Tom Brady Blitzes Yahoo!: In a federal complaint, Brady charges Yahoo! used his photo without authorization in a September 2006 Sports Illustrated ad and in banner ads on Yahoo! Sports pages. Brady alleges that Yahoo!'s use of his image (he's one of six players in the ad) connotes a false endorsement and, as such, is seeking unspecified punitive and compensatory damages against the company.

When Ozzie tells you to plunk, you plunk...or get plunked: In the White Sox vs. Rangers game yesterday, rookie reliever Sean Tracey got yanked after what looked like a failed plunk attempt on Hank Blalock (who grounded out.) Tracey, who got called up to replace the injured Cliff Politte, got an earful from manager Ozzie Guillen, then demoted back to Triple A. Does Tracey deserve sympathy or did he get what he deserved?

Witten Ends Retirement; Returning to Cowboys

I always liked Witten ... as a player. Maybe now I can watch MNF again (which is exactly what I said when Gruden left.)

NFL team owners approve Raiders' move to Vegas

I became a Raiders fan when they were in Los Angeles, and I would have loved it if they had come back. But since I've never been to a game in Oaklandmeh. My relationship with them is through television and radio. Where they play home games doesn't actually matter to me. I'll catch them here in L.A. when they play the Chargers or the Rams. And I'll probably try to catch a game in Oakland before they leave. But Oakland, Los Angeles, or Las Vegas, it's all the same.

Federal Judge Tosses Brady's 4-Game NFL Suspension

I don't care for Goodell, but I don't understand the cries for him to resign or be fired. The owners hired him to be what he istheir version of Vince McMahon. Except for the few owners who can't seem to get out of their own way, he takes all the heat away. Fans, media, and even non-football fans see him as a villainand people love to hate a heel. Is he Draconian? Absolutely. Inept? Eh. I bet a lot of people who used to hate Brady/The Patriots have sympathy now. I have an easier time believing he's a diabolical genius than Barney Fife.

Epic Mavs Comeback Shocks Thunder

Whenever I would read or hear someone compare Kobes playoff performances to Michael Jordans, I would roll my eyes. Cant remember which announcer said it last night, but they compared Dirks performance in these playoffs to the performances Jordan used to have. Didnt roll my eyes. Never felt one way or the other about Dirk, but I think Im a fan. Guy is amazing right now.

Is Matt Leinart a Starting QB?

He's got talent, but he plays like he's afraid of getting hit.

Alabama Beats Florida to Reach National Championship Game

I hate Saban for how he bailed on the Dolphins, but I was pulling for him and the Tide. Just got tired of hearing about Florida/Tebow all the time. I guess now I'll pull for Tebow/Florida and hope Saban loses the championship game.
